Definition

One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Poems In April - The Tuesday Platform


Welcome to the Tuesday Platform, your unprompted free-range day for sharing poems in the Imaginary Garden. Please look up from your smartphone and link up a poem. Then be sure to visit the offerings of our fellow writers.

And for those of you who would like some inspiration, I suggest you pick a few words or a short line from a favorite poet of old and create your own poem. If you love a line from one of your fellow poet's poem, I recommend that you ask permission if it's alright to work it into a poem of your own. Please do remember to give due credit to the person from whom you're borrowing the words from.  Have fun!

PS:  My initial wording for this optional prompt might have been confusing, so I decided to re-word it.πŸ’•

Thanks, Sanaa. I'm sharing one of the early ones from a fictional series I did recently. I'm not sure how it will go out of context, but we'll see.

a rather predictable April poem which I had not intended to write but the words took their place on the page and stayed. Off to the gym - reading and viewing vid later. Thank you!

HI Sanaa. glad to have you hosting again. i'm at work..so will catch up reading later. Have a great day everyone!

Fireblossom said...

No, DON'T "take a line or two from your fellow poet's poem." That's a really bad, really presumptuous idea. Take "a line or two" from one of my poems and I'll tie your spleen in a bosun's knot.

This is a quick 'hello' from me... First day of the new school term and I've had the poetry squashed out of me. I will be back tomorrow, playing catch up. I'm sorry to miss out all the fun.

Magaly Guerrero said...

I'm a bit late, but... better late than (insert whatever it is people say here).

Thanks for the prompt, Sanaa. I shall be back in a bit to delight on everyone's offerings.

Oh, and those of you who are doing this every day, you are my heroes. Very mad heroes, but heroes nonetheless. You rocketh very mucho.

Rommy said...

I'm a last minute writer too. I took a break from tanka for this latest piece. Music counts as poetry (sometimes) right? I think Lin-Manuel Miranda's lyrics are pretty poetic at times, so I created something from a phrase from Hamilton.

Sanaa Rizvi said...

@Rommy; Coolest!!πŸ’ž Can't wait to see what you came up with! Happy Tuesday ☕
